“Claire has come in to Say Yes Buffalo twice now to present to our college students in the Ambassador Leadership Program on using their LinkedIn profiles professionally and effectively. She did a fantastic job helping students learn how to use LinkedIn as a professional tool, convincing them of its benefits, and how to use it appropriately. You could tell that the students were engaged by the fact that they immediately started working on their profiles and connected with Claire on LinkedIn after the meeting. I highly recommend working with Claire to learn more about how to use LinkedIn as a way to connect to others professionally. We look forward to bringing Claire back in the future to support more students as they learn professional skills that will help them succeed. We truly appreciate Claire supporting our students in this manner.” – Johanna Caplan


“I’ve had the pleasure of being co-panelist with Claire Petrie for 2 different panel discussions that were specifically about how to maximize a Linkedin profile. One of the panels, I organized for the SUNY Career Development Organization (SUNYCDO) conference in June 2019. This conference hosted career development professionals from all over New York State. When deciding who to put on this panel I immediately thought of Claire. She is an expert in using Linkedin from both the job seeker and recruiter perspective. Claire did an awesome job on the panel. She is not only a Linkedin guru but also an excellent public speaker and trainer. Just being connected to Claire on Linkedin will be helpful to you, as she can use her Linkedin profile and followers to promote your activity, posts, etc. Connect with her and then message Claire about how she may help you to meet your goals. I am glad I did.” – Ed Brodka

“In August 2019, Claire served as a speaker and presenter for the Buffalo Niagara Partnership’s young professionals program, BN360. The event was called “LinkedIn Lessons.” Claire is an exceptional presenter and a true expert in her field. She combines her industry knowledge of HR, LinkedIn and other key topics with her hands-on experience in a way that is both engaging and educational. She not only had the room engaged…but actually participating and asking questions. What’s more is that Claire’s LinkedIn learnings were taken and applied outside of the educational seminar. In the days, weeks, and months following attendees were using what Claire taught them – a true measure of her success as an educator, facilitator and expert in the field.” – Rachael Herrmann


“Claire is a true HR / Talent Acquisition professional. She has a passion for helping people succeed in their job search and is driven by the relationships she creates. I’ve had the pleasure to work with Claire on a project for her blog and her communication style is welcoming and genuine. She unselfishly shares information that is logical and informative to her audience. Claire brings a fresh voice to the HR community. I am so grateful for our mentorship.” – Michelle Kohlhof
